Why Precious Metals
Investments in precious metals carry no government risk, can’t be printed at will by any Central Bank and is physical property that cannot be diluted. Gold and other precious metals have stood the test of time for thousands of years and have performed marvelously in the face of inflation, market volatility, political turmoil, currency devaluation, terrorist threats and even war.
Diversification is the only way to secure wealth by reducing overall volatility and risk. By adding physical gold or other precious metals to your IRA, you free yourself of the dependence on the prices of risky paper assets such as stocks, bonds and ETFs.
In addition to most retirement plans having very limited investment options and direct exposure to stock market prices, a precious metal or gold IRA has the ability to accumulate investment growth on a tax -deferred basis.
As a liquid asset, gold and other precious metals can be readily converted into cash or goods because it is a globally recognized currency. You are able to take an “in-kind” distribution of the precious metals out of the IRA – meaning that when you choose to or are required to take a distribution, you always the option of either selling the precious metals in your portfolio or having your IRA precious metal holdings physically shipped to your doorstep “in-kind”.
Precious Metals investments have been viewed as a way to pass on and preserve wealth from one generation to the next, especially because of global demand. For example, as of 2014, China’s gold demand has quadrupled in a decade, surpassing India as the top consumer. A conservative outlook to 2018 suggests demand will increase at least 24%.
